This support site is intended to help people with Bioconductor packages, and Rcmdr is a CRAN package. In future you should ask about CRAN packages on r-help@r-project.org.

That said, the default library directory on Windows is not writeable by a regular user, and when you try to install packages you should get a message asking if you would like to use a personal library instead. You should say 'Yes' to that, otherwise you won't be able to install any packages.
